Russian Airlines Defending from Pregnant Women

Some Russian air carriers derogate pregnant women from their rights, according to human rights defenders. The thing Russian airlines are afraid of most of all is that the labour may start straight during a flight, because such emergency situations may result in forced landing. For an air company this always means considerable extra-expenses; due to this a number of Russian air carriers have decided to unjustly restrict women rights.
      Sometimes heavily pregnant women encounter pure discrimination: the airlines compel them to go through a compulsory medical checkup in order to confirm readiness of the woman and foetus for a flight and in a number of cases even do not allow women to go aboard plane.
      For instance, such Russian air carriers as Transaero and S7 Airlines accept heavily pregnant women to pass the flight check-in only if they have a health record and a medical certificate confirming the absence of contraindications to an air flight and a threat of premature labour.
      Besides, pregnant air passengers have to sign a guarantee commitment making the air carrier abdicant of any consequences that a flight may cause upon the woman and foetus. In case if any of the required documents is missing the air carriers can immediately annul the womans air tickets.
